A new startup called 'NeuralLink' by Elon Musk has already become known to many. The company is primarily working to create technology to connect people's brains with computers. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the company will develop the so-called 'neural lace' technology, which allows small electrodes to be placed in the brain. This technology can be used to improve memory or connect people with artificial intelligence. The top academicians in the US have already been contracted to work at the institution.
The idea of making such a device of the mind no longer sounds like a fantasy. In fact, researchers have come very close to making such a device. Facebook researchers have come a long way in this regard. They are thinking of creating a device in the future that will allow the brain to type a word and send it in the form of a message. Facebook officials said recently that their findings were promising.
Facebook authorities are actually trying to create a device that will make people no longer have to look at smartphones. That is, researchers have gone on to create more modern products than smartphones. This device will work when installed on the head. Researchers talk about the possibility of creating wearable technologies, including Augmented Reality (AR) glass from Facebook. It is possible to communicate with each other even without using a smartphone.
According to a Facebook blog post, there is a huge potential for AR to be easier to communicate with each other. In this, people no longer have to look at the phone screen. Besides, you do not have to lean towards the laptop. Can exchange important information in the eyes of the people.
Facebook announced their Research Lab Building 8 in 2017. There is work on the computer brain interface. Regina Dugan, head of the computer brain interface project at Facebook at the time, said that Facebook was going to create a 'silent space system' that could type 100 words in minutes directly from the brain. It will be able to work faster than a word can type on a phone.
Researchers at several universities, including Stanford University, have been successful in using this technology in paralyzed patients in separate studies. However, in their study, the electrodes need to be separated from the patient's brain. But Facebook researchers say that their research can be communicated only if the device is worn on the head. People will get brain-to-brain communication within a few days if Facebook takes their research further.
Earlier, South Korean company Samsung had said that it would create a brain-controlled TV system. Under the Ponthius project in collaboration with the Ecole Polytechnic Federal de Lozen (EPFL) in Switzerland, the company took the initiative to allow people with severe physical disabilities to enjoy their favorite event without the help of anyone else. This process involves using a brain-computer interface (BCI) to connect the TV to the brain so that a headset with 64 sensors and an i-motion tracker remain in place to monitor eye movements.
Brain and memory retention are categorized as 'transhumanism'. Transhumanism believes that it is possible to take the human body from its present form to another with the help of technology and scientists. Ray Carziel, director of Google's engineering department, is among those who spread the idea of uploading their thoughts directly to the computer, who believe that by 2045 people will be able to upload their entire brain to the computer. Just like scientific fiction!
Mask's organization is now working on such a technology. The latest they have developed 'neural lace' technology. It will put a kind of conductor in the brain to measure signals. She needs surgery. The project may seem overly ambitious due to the limitations of current technology. However, technology researchers have been working tirelessly for breakthroughs.
